for the winter. None of them will be at the White House. Quentin, the
youngest has just been sent to a boarding school at Alexandris, Va., six miles

St. Louis. Oct. 5- The statement of Representative Nicholas Longsworth
in a a)ieoch in Illinois Friday, thnt his President Roosevelt, intended
hia ward. Judge William H. Tnft, should be elected President for two
terms and the reigning executive then again nBsume the control of the nation
for eight more years, nas aroused wide comment throughout the country.
Thousands of nersons heard the remarks of Mr. Lomrsworth. and there
can be no doubt that he has been correctly quoted.
Mr. I.ongsworth's stateim nt was made riuring a course of a euology and
defense of the President's administration. Mombcrs of the audience that
heard his remarks have since asavrtod repeatedly that there were no levity in
tone or gesture accompanying the remarkable word", nnd apparently he told
secret of the White House and disclosed the ambition of his father-in-law.
Chicago. Oct. ft Commenting on Comjrossman's Longworth's speech the
Chicago Journal sas:
"Mr. Rosevelt has four sons to whom he doubtles intends to have his
crown decend. nnd it may then go to the Longworth branch of the House of
So far there are no defendants of the House of Nicholas Longswortk.
The plan to pass the crown along to the longsworth would shut out
Fairbanks. La Follette, Hughes, Cannon, Reveridge or any other aspirant.
The American schoolboy could no longer look farward to the White House as a
I.ongworth'8 utterance stamps Taft beyond dispute ns merely the vice
regent of Roosevelt, ruling during n sort of protectorate until Roosevelt shall
be readv to como into his own again.
This Longworth delaration coming right from Roosevelt's own family,
must be authoritative.
Republican managers are angry at this break coming on top of Roosevelt
hitting nt PriiBt and striking Nagcl, and hitting nt Olney and striking aft.

Walter Enochs recently bought was bjrned to the ground Thursday afternoon,
by fire of unknown origin. None of the family was at home nt the time and
no fire was in the house that they knew of. but a it caught in tho atic or roof

burned until fanned v the nfternoon wind it broke out into a lame when
all the family was away and soon consumed the building. Nothing was saved
except a bed nd a few chairs which Mrs. Enochs carried out after her arrival
